Delaware River Report / Conditions June 29, 2020

Jun 29, 2020 No Comments by

We had a few storms pass through yesterday but not enough rain fell to really affect the river flows.  There were a few olives and cahills in the evening but the sulphurs held off on the lower West.  The day time sulphurs are coming off in the colder river sections and should settle in over the next couple of weeks.  Today will be in the low 80’s with sun mixed with clouds.  Wind will be 10 – 15 from the North.  Wet flies and nymphs will be the best bet early until the sulphurs hatch on the upper river in the afternoon.  The warm air temp and sunshine will probably push the temps over 70 degrees on the lower Beaverkill, lower Eat Branch, and Mainstem.
